Boost premium requires a single credit card per line.
Regular boost cannot be monitored over the website and cell only cannot be blocked (i was told by the salesman).

If you own a business, you can run your credit and possibly get approved for more lines. However, if your business has not been in operation for a year, you will come back with a deposit and the deposit will be per line.

Your salesman is right. The cell cannot be blocked if you get Boost. If you are determined to still go with Boost. Go ahead and give the phones to your guys. If they use up any cell minutes, deduct it from their paycheck.

I was doing some math and if you have 26 phones and put them all on the $50 rate plan - that's 1300 a month (200 under your budget) They give you a choice with the rate plan to either use a prepaid visa card or your checking acct. Frankly, I would go with a prepaid visa card considering your giving i...

Thank-U for your respose Insert Witty Name
That is a real option,
but i if i want to get things done i need to deal with them myself after all im responsible for comunication and drivers have all day to make up excuses. this is a good option but i need something more reliable than drivers paying their own phone with allowance, i will do this if everything else fails as im not loosing this contract ! opportunity knock's only three times in a lifetime

ohh and this is no scam i got my EIN my DBA and by monday my advantage bank of america Commercial Acct. and a Certificate of liability for 1,000,000.us dollars that the company required for me to pick up the contract

3 times? I think opportunity lost my address then. Sad

Oh, and that last paragraph. Totally not necessary. Any real business owner would not want to spill personal details... bit odd.

Even if they limit it to one visa per phone, it is still doable. You will have to keep it very organized, of course. Perhaps, have them in seperate envelopes with the employees name written on the top. Every month, say on the 5th, make your trip to add the money. If an employee goes over his $50.00 limit before the 5th and has had the phone shut off, make him responsible for paying the extra time. I could really see the Boost option working for you.

Well ...im now a Boost Customer having bought 26 of them thank's every one for the advice.
ive been told that the Cell option can be blocked
and others say is not possible i will post it as soon as i activate the 1st one and find out myself
if everything goes well i will stay with boost if not i will be forced to move on and get a contract as soon as my credit allows it.
if anyone think im missing someting please let me know! advice of any kind will be very welcome.

That's cool. I would be interested in knowing if they actually let you restrict the cell part.
